SAN FRANCISCO, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Barbagelata Real Estate, a San Francisco-based family owned firm since 1952, announces that accomplished San Francisco real estate agent Vivian Lee, has joined their real estate brokerage after a short hiatus.
Lee previously worked at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in San Francisco from 2002-2007. She was recognized as one of the company's top producers during her tenure with the company. She represents both buyers and sellers of residential (luxury homes, single-family homes, condominiums, tenancies-in-common) and investment properties (2-4 units, multiple unit buildings) in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"Barbagelata Real Estate is honored to have Vivian join our firm," said Paul Barbagelata, broker and owner of Barbagelata Real Estate. "Vivian is dynamic and results-driven and has a talent for fierce negotiation, open communication, smart strategy and thinking outside the box. Her commitment to her clients' best interests, her unparalleled market knowledge, and her high standards of excellence and integrity match perfectly with Barbagelata's standards of elite performance."
Lee brings a unique advantage to her clients, with her background and expertise in digital marketing. She worked as an online marketing manager for an e-marketing firm where she managed search engine marketing, pay-per-click advertising, social media marketing, and budget management and planning for small to mid-sized web clients. Prior to that, Vivian worked as a senior marketing associate for a marketing promotions company where she formulated creative concepts, managed program financials, and developed marketing proposals for clients in the consumer packaged goods industry.
"I look forward to being affiliated with Barbagelata Real Estate, a name that has deep roots in the San Francisco community. I was attracted to their entrepreneurial spirit and the fact that they have been an early adopter of technology," said Lee. "As the real estate industry becomes increasingly digital and mobile, my goal is to give home buyers and sellers the tools and strategies that offer the best home buying and selling experience," said Lee upon joining Barbagelata Real Estate.
As a native San Franciscan, Vivian is passionate about San Francisco and considers herself a local expert, writing San Francisco neighborhood round-ups on her blog, Vivian Lee – Real Estate and the City (http://www.vivianleesf.com/). She graduated from the University of San Francisco in 1996 and has a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing. When Vivian is not working, she enjoys outdoor activities and creative projects with her six-year-old son, hot yoga, following local blogs and listening to music.
